PRESIDENTS MESSAGE

What a good start to 2020. 17 intrepid travellers made their way to Moonah Links to have lunch with us. The sun shone and everyone seemed to enjoy the fellowship. It was a relaxed lunch and it was good to see Members and Partners enjoying the day. 

Thanks must go to Ngaire for organising the event and to everyone who helped with the clean up too!


I look forward to seeing Members next Tuesday 4th February at Kooyong and  to a successful year.

Kind regards,
Charlotte England
President, Rotary Hawthorn.

The invitation should have read 12.30 – 4.00 as the 20 of us who gathered were enjoying a wonderful interactive and relaxing time and there was no seeming need to wind it all up.

Speed Reading

If you want to read faster than most other people, there are plenty of books, classes, and videos offering to teach you how. Speed reading has been an international fascination since the 1950s, when American school teacher Evelyn Wood created a system teaching students how to read thousands of words per minute. She called it “dynamic reading,” but “speed reading” is the name that caught on.

THE SHADOW KNOWS

The Year of the Rat

The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.

In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Because of their reproduction rate, married couples also prayed to them for children.

The Shadow has yet another tale to tell, about rats . . . .
